For example, Slowpoke now requires a Shellder in the active party to evolve. Upon hitting Lv. 37, it will evolve into Slowbro, unless it's holding the King's Rock, in which case it evolves into Slowking. The older evolutions methods would no longer work as of Gen. VI.

Another possibility could be turning Nidoran into a single Pokemon line, with obvious gender differences. (Which would still maintain each gender having different stat arrangements and moves.)

Would you be in favor of this?

Slowpoke's all right, but nidoran is terrible, it would mess up the dex number of nearly ALL the mons.

In other words, different Pokémon?

Exactly what I thought. I'd love more non-level up/completely level up evolutions though, like the Slowpoke idea.

Exactly. I know it won't happen for that reason.

That said, though, I would be in favor of a completely reorganized Pokedex, that sorted Pokemon first by type (alphabetically) and then lowest evolution form (alphabetically).

Will never happen, but hey, I can dream.
